In todays News, the Metropolitan Police are pressing to be allowed to purchase 3 second hand water cannon from Germany at the cost of 300,000 each, are they expecting trouble? perhaps I am being cynical, but with a general election due, and the possibility of another term for this odious government perhaps they are thinking ahead.

Personally I hope people learn after 13 years of Labours destruction of the country and figure out that voting for any LibLabCon politician be they Council or HOP politician that all they are doing is going around in circles and getting poorer and poorer each time no wonder, less and less people are voting.

I agree Dave but what's the solution? the whole system of government needs overhauling, parliament is akin to a chimps tea party, overgrown sexist schoolboys point scoring, a system from the middle ages open to abuse, the dog wagging the tail, the only choice we have is to vote for the lesser of the evils, but definitely no coalition.

1. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Wirral.

2. It's nothing to do with the government. No government is ever ideal but that's democracy for you.

3. Perfectly legitimate and peaceful demonstrations are hijacked by trouble makers such as Anarchists and Socialist Worker. Is it any surprise that anyone would want to protect London after the Poll Tax riots ?

Agent provocateurs and police cars abandoned for the inevitable attention they got. The staged photo shoots of the dawn raids on looters and arsonists,now thats "democracy".UK style.

I heard somebody on the News the other day, when commenting on the Ukraine situation, say that we are so lucky in this country that we don't have such dreadful scenes here.
I know many out there won't agree with me, but it seems to me, that the countries where civil unrest on the scale we have seen these past few weeks in Ukraine, are governed by presidential rulers( whose corrupt ways know no bounds); whereas here we have a monarchy and for all it's ills a stable parliament.
It's probably one of the reasons that these shores are so attractive to people who will move heaven and earth to get here from their poverty stricken, war torn homelands.
Problem is, we too are paving the way for civil unrest as enclaves of people who have no intentions of abandoning their own cultures become the target of our own underclasses and malcontents. Then there are the enormous pressures on the authorities to provide housing, education, welfare, etc.
The fact is, although we have enjoyed decades of peace, compared to the war years since the European project began, I think it's time that we reconsidered our future as to whether or not we should remain a member of the EEC. It's the only way we can close our borders. Parliament cannot do it. If things continue the way that they are, the Capital will need more than a few water canons.
